The long awaited rematch between former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and current champion Daniel Cormier has been officially announced for UFC 214.

Jones, who has been on a USADA suspension will be cleared in time to fight at UFC 214 in Anaheim, CA.

When the announcement was made at the UFC summer kickoff presser, the Dallas crowd booed the former champion.

The rivalry between Jones and Cormier has been boiling over for years, including a scuffle backstage.

The rematch was meant to happen at UFC 200 but Jones was removed from the fight just days before due to a failed drug test. Cormier has defended the light- heavyweight title twice since he obtained it in 2015.
